Length-at-age was fit with three models; the von Bertalanffy and Gompertz curve
fits are shown in Figure 1.
The relationship of growth of vehicle ownership and GDP per capita can be modeled in specific form, and an improvement has been carried out based on the most usually used Gompertz curve
in order to obtain a better fitting projection.
can be used to establish the functional relationship between safety investment and accident probability of items.

as a growth curve," Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, vol.
Equation (11) (a modification of Gompertz curve
equation in order to predict concrete's compressive strength) is widely used.
It should be noted here that the Gompertz curve
describes aging dynamics of wide class of eukaryotic organisms from the colonies of yeast up to the higher mammals including humans.
characteristic were around the inflection point where maximum growth rate is achieved (Fialho 1999).
(2011) and the Gompertz curve
was fitted to the Mengali sheep data.
(1999)  used four procedures to estimate cumulative percentage at unmeasured particle size, including log-linear and spline interpolation methods, Gompertz curve
regression method, and similarity method.

: The logistic curve closely resembles the half normal curve whereas the Gompertz curve
is not normal but a skewed one.
The Gompertz curve
has the following mathematical formulation:
